It all starts with the murder of INS agent Kiko Vigil, shot by an unknown gunman in a Larimer Street bar in Denver where he was drinking with the wife of Elias Garza, a major smuggler of illegal immigrants. Private investigator Danny Mora, known to his oldest friends as Moony, is hired by a colleague of Vigil's to look into the shooting. Did Vigil make the fatal error of sleeping with Garza's beautiful wife, or is that just a cover story? Was the INS on the verge of ruining Garza's business? Moony's quest for the truth leads first to his old nemesis, Garza's sleazy attorney Victor Delgado. Soon the sleaze factor is surpassed by blood as the bodies begin to pile up. Like Manuel Ramos's earlier series of crime novels featuring Luis Montez, Moony's Road is populated by ageing idealists who remember the glory days of Chicano activism in the 1970s. This noir thriller tinged with sharp social commentary will attract new fans to an author known as a founder of the Chicano/Latino mystery genre.

For Luis Montez, Denver attorney perennially on the edge of disaster, even a vacation can mean trouble. Physically fatigued, mentally exhausted, and severely banged up from his most recent misadventures, Luis accepts a friend's offer to relax on a Mexican beach. But things just don't work out the way he plans. Rachel, the young and mysterious woman he meets on the beach, disappears, and when Luis returns to Denver to try to resuscitate his law practice, he finds a flashy and tough private eye pressing him for details. Luis soon learns that Rachel is a member of a wealthy, powerful family that will stop at nothing to find her - and Luis is the last person known to have seen her. To keep the professional detective at bay, Luis embarks on his own investigation, one that takes him deep into the dark worlds of petty hoodlums, rich men's fantasies, and the underbelly of Denver's fringe literary community.

6. Brown-on-brown [2003]

Book
ix, 178 p. ; 21 cm.
This novel marks the return of Manuel Ramos's character, Luis Montez. A Denver defence attorney who is always just one step ahead of his creditors and not too particular about the cases he takes on, Montez's next client is Dominic Santos. Santos has been charged with torching the property of a powerful Anglo San Luis Valley rancher and causing the death of a hired hand. The backdrop of Brown-On-Brown is the ever-present Chicano/Anglo disputes over water rights in Colorado's San Luis Valley. Ramos effectively provides the Chicano perspective on water and land disputes while guiding the reader through a maze of multiple murders.
